Wow, you might rival Sluffy in the blind support of Anderson stakes.

For the record for about the thousandth time now - I am not and never have been a supporter of Ken Anderson.

By the same token I am not and never have been a hater of Kenneth Anderson.

What I have been consistently and without deviation from is not to judge him on preconceived opinions and without hearing both sides of the story and listening to whatever facts are made available.

For that I've been branded by some as some sort of disciple of KA and often abused - by one on here in particular.

Fwiw I also fully agree with LT above - surely what should be important to the players are winning the few remaining games that are left - everybody their dog knows about wages not having been paid, how can going on strike and not training for a match that will probably/effectively relegate us if we don't win make it any wider known than it already is?

It's going to be played behind closed doors anyway. The players SHOULD strike and i fully support them. Fans saying they should "think of the fans" is a selfish motion. The non playing staff don't have the same support (and wages) the playing staff do. The players striking on their behalf sends a message.

But the strike hasn't solved anything, the staff still won't be paid as Ken stated. It will hurt the club in the long run. If we go down, we will have to make cut backs therefore some of these staff members who haven't been paid, could well be out of a job.

I take it that season ticket holders will get a refund for the games they are unable to attend due to this?

And you think 2 training sessions are more of a diffference than a season of turmoil off the pitch and a chronically underfunded side on it?

It's about more than the wages. It's principal. It's raising awareness of the absolute shit stain our club has been painted in. 

It's about looking at the bigger picture. Standing up for what you believe in. That's why teachers, firefighters, police, nhs staff etc all go on strike.  Thats why we have protests.  Its the bigger picture.  If people never took a stand then those in power would just walk all over everyone they could.

Kenocchio has been a busy man this week, apparently it's all the players fault that the next 2 games are going to be behind closed doors and nothing to do with him not paying anyone  Rolling Eyes

I am grateful for the High Court’s decision this morning to adjourn the hearing until May 8, which gives us the time to finalise the deal for the sale of my shares to the interested buyers, who have committed to buying the club and clearing all the debts including the substantial amounts that were there before I got involved with the club and secured on the stadium, hotel and training ground.

It was interesting to be told that Terence Rigby of the Supporters’ Trust had contacted our barrister yesterday evening saying that they ‘have partners who have shown serious interest and do have funds’, particularly as we have always made it absolutely clear to them that if that was the case and they could show proof of funds and go through the same process as everybody else, that we would be delighted to meet them.

Unfortunately, the usual proof of funds information required in these matters has never been provided. 

Likewise, l would like to make it absolutely clear that the so-called mystery buyer Gaspard Holdings are ‘not on the verge of completing a deal’ and virtually everything else they said in the report was total nonsense.

Unfortunately, they have been making similar promises for at least two years and in all that time the people concerned have never been able to provide any satisfactory proof of funds and have wasted a great deal of everyone’s time. 

In the meantime, everyone at the club is doing everything possible to try to ensure that this weekend’s match against Ipswich Town and next Tuesday’s against Middlesbrough go ahead as normal, but this may now depend on whether the players see sense and stay loyal to the supporters and season ticket holders and return to full training tomorrow. 

For my part, I continue to be positive and think that we still have a good chance of retaining our Championship status and also believe that my decision not to place the club in administration and incur a 12 points deduction was the correct one.  

If l had have placed the club in administration, it would have meant that the club would have incurred a 12-point deduction either this season or next depending on the timing and my aim is and always will be to try and ensure that this did not happen for obvious reasons. 

As soon as l have anything further to add, l will as always do it through the club’s mediums and not the media or on social media to ensure that the club’s loyal supporters are the first to hear.

Regards,

Ken

I doubt Ken ever turned up for such meetings when the wages were being paid!

More likely Aldridge or an even lower tier of employee at the club.

Well unless I've missed something I don't think he's been arrested yet for anything he's done illegally at the club and if he has apparently robbed it blind then why are Bassan, Bassini, Gaspard, Dark Horse and even the ST all lining up to buy it from him?

He's run the club as a business, been a bit of a hard nosed bastard whilst doing so maybe, but he was never here to piss away his life savings into it.

People can't seem to grasp that he's here to make some money out of the club for himself and not the other way around.

Anyway his time is nearly up and we will soon see if he gets put in jail or not.

Despite what you’re trying to tell yourself, not a single person thinks Anderson is in it for anything but the money.

People are pissed off because he’s making a public mockery of the club, it’s staff and players.

You can’t buy a Championship Club, invest nothing and expect success. Our success and the club are being sacrificed so Ken gets a payday.

If you were an employee of BWFC (I don't mean centre forward, although you couldn't be any worse), would you feel the same?

If I was an employee at BWFC when Holdsworth and Anderson took over three years ago I would have long since found myself another job and left.

If I saw a job advertised at BWFC in the last couple of years, then I would have turned over the page and looked for one I felt had more security to it.

If people have been there for three years or more then it surely wouldn't have come as a shock to them that they might once again not be paid on time. If they haven't the ambition, desire, need want, gumption, common sense, call it whatever you wish, to find themselves something more secure then that's entirely up to them but I don't find myself having a great deal of sympathy for them. The same goes for anyone taking up a job at the club since its widely been known about the money troubles there.


If people want to put themselves into the firing line, or haven't the sense to move away from it, then why are they then so surprised if they get shot?

Yeah I think I am.

He's been quite entertaining over the last three years - a real life soap opera with him playing the pantomime villain - because everybody automatically boos him when he's on stage.

It's certainly not been boring for the last three years - that's for certain.

Oh no it's not...

Oh yes it has...!

I can confirm that Saturday’s Sky Bet Championship fixture against Ipswich Town and next Tuesday’s game against Middlesbrough will go ahead as scheduled after the Safety Advisory Group lifted the prohibition notice.

I would like to thank all the agencies involved as well as the council for their support in this matter. I would also like to thank Shaun Harvey and the EFL as well as Michael James (Prescott Business Parks) for their support.

The game against Ipswich is our annual community fixture, in conjunction with Bolton At Home and the Bolton Wanderers Community Trust, with tickets priced at just £5.00.

I hope as many supporters as possible take advantage of this offer as we look to fill the stadium to show their support for the club during this crucial phase of the season.

Bolton Central will also be running a special match day offer where supporters can get FREE personalisation on every home shirt purchased. Shirts are priced at just £19.99 so please hurry while stocks last.

We now look forward to two very important home fixtures and we hope that our supporters fully get behind the players.

Tickets for both games can be bought online by visiting eticketing.co.uk/bwfc

I thank you for your patience during this time and I hope you enjoy Saturday’s match.

Throughout my three years at the club, l have always tried to communicate with the supporters where possible, as l was very conscious that this was a criticism levied at my predecessors.
Despite this, there have been times when the local media have criticised me for excessive communications, but more recently for not communicating.
Unfortunately, my hands have been tied recently with confidentiality agreements etc which has obviously created problems with communicating.

Sadly, l continue to be shown reports in the media or posted on social media platforms that do not reflect the true facts.
This is because generally speaking, it’s pure speculation, as the authors have no access to what is actually happening.

Most recently there has been a great deal written and said about the club borrowing monies from the PFA to pay the players' salaries.
So to put the record straight once and for all, in my three years at the club the PFA have only once assisted in paying the players' salaries which was on Christmas Eve in 2018 and the monies were repaid on January 16, 2019.

I accept that l have made mistakes along the way and l have to admit that the player recruitment over the last two seasons has not been good enough, in so far, as many of the players recruited have not started, or even been included in the matchday squads this season.
With hindsight, this should have been addressed earlier, but as they say hindsight is a wonderful thing.

That said, it should also be remembered that ours is not the smallest player budget in the league, as is often incorrectly stated and substantial salaries in excess of £500,000 are being paid to a number of players who have not been involved for most of the season.

I still believe that the players' decision to go on a 48 hour strike on April 1 when their March salaries were not paid was premature and inappropriate and l question their explanation of why they did it.
If they wanted to show their support for the non-playing staff then there were far better ways in which they could have shown their support.
Interestingly, the staff continued to work which clearly shows their commitment and loyalty to the business and this is why they were paid as soon as we were legally in a position to be able to do so.

Whilst we have substantially reduced costs and brought in new revenue sources, unfortunately some of the debts and agreements that l inherited have continued to hinder the club and hotel financial progress.
Fortunately, a number of these are shortly coming to an end, in particular the SCC catering agreement whereby they effectively retain nearly 80% of the turnover and we have to pay all the utilities and some of the staff costs from the remaining 20%.
How this was ever agreed, l will never know. Similar comments apply to several player agency consultancies and cleaning contracts, not to forget the absolutely crazy ongoing agreement with Macron and the ridiculous rates that both the club and hotel have been assessed, dating back to when the club was in the Premiership which in all have and continue to cost the businesses several millions of pounds.
I would also question the earlier decisions to sell off of a number of the club's assets including the car parks, offices and training ground as well as taking a substantial loan secured on the hotel just before l became involved and how these funds were utilised.

As l have recently stated, following the protests and vile abuse posted on social media towards me and my family and subsequently in December the police advising me it was not safe to attend matches, like my predecessor the late Eddie Davies, l reluctantly decided enough was enough and stopped funding the businesses apart from the February salaries.
Prior to Christmas however, I attended the majority of the club's home and away matches over the last three seasons.
Accordingly, all payments due now have to be met through the club's own limited cash flow, which is now becoming even more difficult because of the bank accounts being effectively frozen and validation orders having to be obtained.
I do wonder how many of my critics would continue to fund the businesses, if they were advised not to attend the matches or the stadium, hotel and training ground, for fear of their safety, as well as the constant abuse encountered?
In any event, it has been made very clear that l was not wanted at the club, so why would l continue to fund it? No doubt, something similar prompted the decision that the late Eddie Davies also came to in 2015.

As usual, the Supporters Trust and in particular Mr Rigby have recently come out of the woodwork and continue to once again talk up their own importance, but the facts are they have never delivered on any of the things they continue to try to take credit for such as so-called new investors in the waiting, helping to pay salaries etc.
As they say, talk is cheap, put your money where your mouth is and maybe, you would have been given a seat at the table. From what l hear, their own corporate governance begs a lot of questions and leaves a lot to be desired.

There has been a great deal of comment about the failures of the recent takeovers and the reasons for this.

For the record, when push came to shove the buyers simply did not have the cash , despite numerous assurances. As far as l am concerned, it had nothing to do with the creditors being higher than they were toId, or what l was demanding personally, as this is simply not the case.
As l have previously stated, l had agreed to accept a lower amount than l actually paid for my shares from several of the potential buyers and even then they wanted and l agreed to defer some of the payment due to me as did the other secured creditors.
The reality is they were probably hoping it would go into administration and they would then acquire it for substantially less, albeit with a points deduction, but a significant saving on creditors.

I hope the above has given everyone a better understanding of the reality of the club's financial position today, but the most important thing to appreciate is that this club cannot survive, let alone prosper on its current revenue streams in any division outside the Premiership without the benefit of substantial and continued financial support from a wealthy benefactor.
This is clearly the case with virtually every other club in the Championship and maybe that’s why both the late Eddie Davies and l have struggled to find a buyer to take the club forward, as in reality there are not that many wealthy benefactors out there who are prepared to bank roll clubs as has been clearly seen with a number of owners making their clubs available for sale in recent years.

For my part, l have always done the best l am able to do, but obviously that is not good enough or sufficient to please a number of our supporters .

Regards,

Ken
